Habito, an app that helps you find the right mortgage
Paperwork, brokerage fees, and a lengthy approval process: these are just some of the problems with using a traditional mortgage broker. However, a new startup app called Habito aims to solve all of these problems. Here’s how Habito helps users find the right mortgage:
Using a traditional mortgage broker means filling out paper applications, forms, and contracts. It’s a lengthy process that requires lots of back-n-forth interactions to ensure the right information is obtained. The amount of paperwork involved in applying for a mortgage might make people feel like they have an office temp job.
Using Habito you’ll be able to get an idea of what your mortgage will look like within five minutes. Simply fill out the easy to complete forms online and the Digital Mortgage adviser will give an overview of the mortgage options, without the paperwork.
Personalised mortgage guidance, without the fees
There is a myriad of fees that traditional mortgage brokers charge. They could include arrangement fees, booking fees, valuation fees, and account fees. Not to mention, they may also get a percentage of the mortgage as a commission. All of these add to the cost of the mortgage.
By moving the entire mortgage application online, Habito eliminates all of these fees. Users will receive personalised mortgage guidance without the high price tag.
Get the best mortgage rate available
Matching the application with the right lender can be a slow, long process with a traditional mortgage broker. Some brokers don’t have access to every lender and may actually be a representative of a certain finance group only, meaning you might not get the best rate available.
Habito does a real-time analysis of more than 11,000 mortgage offers from 70 lenders to bring the best rate available for the user’s personal circumstances. This speeds up the entire mortgage application process and ensures people aren’t being overcharged.
Save money over the long term: Get alerts when a better offer becomes available
With most traditional brokers the relationship ends once the application approved and the applicant is granted the loan. Over time, mortgage rates and the personal income circumstances could change and you could end up being mismatched with your current loan. This means larger mortgage payments than if you were matched with a better loan.
Habito will continually monitor mortgage products according to your circumstances and will alert you if you’ve become mismatched. This could save you potentially thousands of dollars over the lifetime of your loan.
